Kolhapur – ‘Different organizations are active in assisting flood victims in Kolhapur Disitict in their own way. Seekers from Sanatan Sanstha, volunteers from Hindu Janajagruti Samiti, and devout Hindus contributed towards this in a big way. Thus seekers performing spiritual practice under the guidance of Paratpar Guru (Dr.) Jayant Athavale and devout Hindus helped these victims and placed ideals before society.
Assistance from Sanatan Sanstha’s couple seekers, the Kakde’s
Two devout Hindu women turned to Sanatan Sanstha’s lady seeker Mrs. Surekha Kakde for help as their houses were leaking due to heavy rains. So Mr. and Mrs. Kakde invited them over for dinner and then dropped them to the flood relief camp. After this incident the two wept out of gratitude saying that when no one offered them even a cup of tea the assistance they received from seekers was beyond verbal description.
